Diabetic Dessert Recipe: Golden Door Brownies - Recipes For Diabetics

Diabetic Dessert Recipe: Golden Door Brownies - Recipes For Diabetics

Preheat oven to 350F. Lightly coat a 8-inch square baking pan with cooking spray. In a bowl, combine the flour, cocoa, baking powder, and baking soda. In a blender or food processor, combine the banana, brown sugar, apple juice, and vanilla extract; process until smooth. Using a rubber spatula, fold into the dry ingredients. In the bowl of an electric mixer set on medium-high speed, beat the egg whites and salt until foamy. Increase the speed to high and beat until soft peaks form. Fold half of the egg whites into the batter. When incorporated, fold in remaining whites just until incorporated. (There may be a few specks of white still showing.) Scrape into the pan and spread evenly. Bake in center of oven for 30 to 35 minutes, until brownie springs back when gently pressed in the center. Cool in the pan on a rack, and cut into 12 squares when completely cool. To serve, heat chocolate chips in a 2-cup glass measuring cup in the microwave for about 30 seconds. Stir until chocolate is melted. Drizzle a little of the chocolate over each brownie. 101 calories (14% calories from fat), 3 g protein, 2 g total fat (0.9 g saturated fat), 20 g carbohydrate, 2 g dietary fiber, 0 cholesterol, 213 mg sodium Continue reading >>

Chewy Fudge Brownies

Chewy Fudge Brownies

1 cup sugar equivalent (I used liquid sucralose aka ez sweetz) Combine almond flour, unsweetened cocoa powder, and baking powder with a whisk until well combined. Melt 6 tbsp butter and stir in the liquid sweetener, vanilla extract and coffee extract. (If you are using granulated sweetener then please add that to your dry ingredients.) Combine dry ingredients, butter, and 6 egg yolks. The batter comes out very thick (that's the yolks at work) I used a fork to mix this and then when it thickened up I used a rubber spatula. Spread the mix into an 8x8 baking pan pushing it out to the edges with your fingers. Bake for 10 minutes Sooooo good! My 14yo daughter made these for us last night and they were awesome. I told her to sub Truvia for the sugar replacement and to use half as much of it, because it's so sweet. She also used dark cocoa powder. They were so yummy. Brownies have always been my favorite but because of the carb overload I resist. First time I've eaten a brownie that wasn't full of bananas, black beans or tofu. Just simple ingredients and awesome chocolate. I found this recipe for making your own chocolate chunks using unsweetened chocolate, cocoa butter, powered cocoa, vanilla and Swerve brand erythritol. I was thinking about trying it as she has no ill effects from erythritol as with other sugar alcohols. I just baked them. They cooled enough to cut and I got to taste a few crumbs. I made a few changes to the recipe, nothing really major. I was unable to find sugar free chips so I grated half a bar of Baker's chocolate. Since it is unsweetened I increase the Splenda by a 1/2 cup. Next time I will probably drop that to a 1/3 or 1/4. They are a bit sweet for me. I also added a 1/3 tsp of cinnamon. I really like that with chocolate, no coffee extract though, I Continue reading >>

Paula Deen's Top Recipes, Made Diabetes-friendly

Paula Deen's Top Recipes, Made Diabetes-friendly

1 / 9 Back in January, celebrity chef Paula Deen went public with her type 2 diabetes diagnosis around the same time an endorsement deal was announced between Deen and the company that makes the diabetes drug Victoza. Since then, the public has been in an uproar over her full-fat, high-sugar recipes and how they may have contributed to her developing the condition, and it's easy to see why. "If you were to regularly eat the foods that Paula Deen traditionally cooks on her show, it certainly would increase the risk for developing type 2 diabetes," says Megan Fendt, nutritionist and certified diabetes educator at the Friedman Diabetes Institute at Beth Israel Medical Center in New York City. "These types of foods are high in calories, and any calories over and above what our bodies need are stored as fat. And there is a strong link between carrying excess weight and developing diabetes." When she made her announcement on the Today Show, Deen told co-host Al Roker, "I share with you all these yummy, fattening recipes, but I tell people, 'in moderation.' However, it's hard to figure out what constitutes a moderate portion of some of her more famous creations — like battered, deep-fried butter balls and a bacon-and-egg burger served on a glazed donut. The good news is you can enjoy Southern-style cooking with a fraction of the fat, sugar, and calories found in Deen's cooking. Here's our healthier, diabetes-friendly take on Paula's classic cuisine.

Fudgey Flourless Chocolate Brownies [gluten, Dairy & Sugar Free]

Fudgey Flourless Chocolate Brownies [gluten, Dairy & Sugar Free]

Fudgey Flourless Chocolate Brownies [Gluten, Dairy & Sugar Free] Here you have a fudgey, decadent chocolate brownie minus dairy, flour, gluten and sugar. Yes, its true! Now before you rush off to examine the ingredient list and then shake your head in disbelief that these could be good bare with me a minute. My husband is the pickiest they come and so is my oldest son. Hubby rarely likes any of my sugar free desserts and both will share how distasteful they think something is without care to hurting my feelings. Im good with that, I really am. I want the truth, always. They not only ate 1 but ate 2, never asking whats in these, never asking whats not in these, never giving a funny face and never saying these were ok (thats usually what I get when they dont really like a recipe). They dont know whats in these and I will never tell and if youre smart you wont share it either. These brownies can stand up to any of the flour and sugar filled brownie recipes around. Im serious. You can serve these to company without anyone even asking if these are healthy. They are scrumptious and hefty and thick and perfect. The first time I made them they were too wet and moist, I adapted again and this time absolutely perfect-o! I was even skeptical ,myself since I never made these kind of brownies with this ingredient before. Im finicky about moistness and finicky if it smells different too. No funny smell, no a..hem.. after-effects of eating 1 or even 2if you know what I mean. The mystery ingredient is all over the internet, BUT of course I would never put that ingredient in the title for goodness sake, who would even want to TRY them!!! But looking at them now, then looking over the ingredients and then you will surely be looking back at the pictures in shock and will have a great des Continue reading >>

6 Brownie Recipes For People With Diabetes

6 Brownie Recipes For People With Diabetes

Bake better brownies Consuming too much sugar is considered by some to be the ultimate marker for developing type 2 diabetes. However, according to the American Diabetes Association (ADA), being overweight is the more significant risk factor. But you can still bake a cake and eat it too if you have diabetes. Certain ingredients have the power to transform traditional sweets into suitable substitutes. Not only will your sweets still taste great, they may even be good for you. And portion control is the second part of the equation. A little bit of something delicious can go a long way. 1. Sugar-free brownies These sugar-free brownies are gluten-free, dairy-free, and sweetened with Swerve, a natural sweetener. The Center for Science in the Public Interest reports that small amounts of erythritol (found in the sweetener) is probably safe. The recipe also calls for protein-rich oat flour. You can make this ingredient inexpensively at home by pulsing dry rolled oats in your food processor, blender, or clean coffee bean grinder. For an extra protein and fiber kick, try adding your favorite nuts. Get the recipe from Sweet As Honey. 2. Single-serving brownie Unsweetened applesauce takes center stage in this gluten-free, grain-free, low-fat, vegan recipe. The single serving size is perfect for portion control. It’s sweetened with just a small amount of maple syrup. Plus, you can make this recipe in the microwave if you need a quick treat. Get the recipe from Southern In Law. 3. Black bean brownies Beans are one of the ADA’s top 10 diabetes superfoods, and they take center stage in this delicious recipe. The best part is that you’d never guess this dessert contains a heaping helping of black beans. The result is a fudgy treat with almost 4 grams of protein and only 12.3 net Continue reading >>
